Grassroots communities in Nigeria are constantly deprived of access to basic human needs like health care, water, education, despite the fact that billions of naira are appropriated for the provision of health facilities, teaching aid, water, and clean energy infrastructure in these regions. Most times, these funds do not reach the communities.
Disturbed by this anomaly, Connected Development (CODE) is providing marginalized communities in Africa with the resources to amplify their voices by creating platforms for dialogue, enabling informed debate, and building the capacity of citizens on how to hold their government accountable through Follow The Money.
